the masses, another big web event happened today, the relaunch of healthcare.gov day two. it marks the official restart of the obama care era and the day the window finally closed for good for republicans trying to kill the thing. from the day obama was elected president, republicans have been determined to block health care reform. they got scott brown elected. they took the law all the way to the supreme court, voted dozens of times to defund or repeal it, shut down the government for 16 days, and obama care survived all of it. irony is that while republicans couldn't kill obama care, the administration almost could. >> good evening. president obama now finds himself compared to president george w. bush, as in the problems with the health care plan have become president obama's katrina. >> but today, the website is now fixed enough that it looks like obama care is really here to stay. the repeal strategy is dead and obama care is out of the icu. according to the administration, the error message rate for the front end of the website is less than 1%. that's down from about 6% last
and workable enough to start promoting it. late yesterday it started with a tweet from healthcare.gov twitter account reporting that 750,000 people had visited the site on monday. while it wasn't perfect, it didn't crash, and right now that's good enough to get the sales campaign off the ground. when the president speaks today, you can expect him to turn to a theme we first heard back when they tried to do this the first time in october. >> let me remind everybody that the affordable care act is not just a website. it's much more. >> remember, the president has been pushing the affordable care act for more than three years, as far back as the summer of 2010 touting early provisions of the law and of course he spent a good chunk of 2012 pitching it on campaign trail. it's critical that the administration fix the politics of this, at least to the point where it's manageable for democrats running in 2014. to do that, the white house will have a coordinated campaign to emphasize the different benefits of the affordable care act. between now and december 23rd, the last day you can sign up in order

. this comes from the "washington post" saying errors generated by the healthcare website could mean many people who think they have signed up for obamacare actually have not. that's because the glitchy website is sometimes sending the wrong information to the insurance companies. bill: the white house is still trying to put a happy face on this. >> the president believes the site has been significantly improved. and the teams in place have worked 24/7 to make those improvements including significant improvements that were made over the weekend. but the work is not done. what is the story this time? >> the story here is the percentage. the idea that maybe one in three of people who have completed the enrollment process haven't had their information conveyed to the insurance companies who are supposed to provide the coverage, then the doctors who are supposed to make the determinations as to what's covered and what's paid for. we know about the dpliches for the so-called 834 reports. but the idea one of three could have a problem is a big deal. bill: that's the error rate? >> right. bill:
healthcare.gov handled 1 million visitors without major issues, the president is launching a massive three-week-long blitz to entice americans back to the website to sign up for insurance policies. >> the bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future. people want the financial stability of health insurance and we're going to keep on working to fix whatever problems come up. >> and so it begins. and this will last until december 23rd, the deadline for people to enroll if they want plans beginning on january 1st. each day the white house says they will plug different benefits that you can get through obama care with help from democrats and progressive action groups. even though we've heard more insurance pitches from the president in the last few months than buill murray endured in "groundhog day." >> just visit healthcare.gov. >> funny you should mention your health because -- >> deal is good. the prices are low. >> i sell insurance. >> what a shock. >> they're leaving a million people now without health insurance. >> i got the feeling you ain't got any. >> people want af

monday that created speed bumps for healthcare.gov. that website had 375,000 visitors before noon. this is after the obama administration said they fixed bugs on the website. they have been issues and sometimes fail to deliver information to being current company. least four more oversight hearings on obamacare later this week. let's talk about sports news. the nationals are hard at work in the off-season. how much will the deal cost them? >> it is big news. it is a good deal for the nationals. i can tell you that the manager, matt williams, the new manager is very excited tonight. -- gio gonzalez and jordan zimmerman. they made a trade to get doug pfister. city and to the motor pfister is 29 years old. he finished 14-9 with 159 strikeouts. in 2012, he set an american league record in kansas city. the staff page detroit into the world series. doug pfister is a battle tested playoff picture. it will be fun to watch. they get pfister from the detroit tigers. >> fun to watch right now. >> see you in a bit. the silver line. we will tell you why they will not make a february launch dat

a disaster. even though now the administration's web site gurus are bragging that healthcare.gov is working more than 90% of the time. that's good enough for government work. get on the school bus, kids! principal obama says the bridge is 0% complete. (laughter) folks, i can see why the administration hadn't got the health care web site up to speed yet-- because they clearly have other priorities. >> every thanks giving the president chooses one turkey to pardon. >> well, tonight president obama is letting you influence the decision by voting on line. >> uncle sam needs you to vote. so do these turkeys, caramel and popcorn, the finalist for national thanksgiving turkeys. only one bird can hold the title. you can vote online. stay tuned to see who wins. >> stephen: oh, i understand why healthcare.gov is screwed: obama needed his a-team to work on turkeycare . gobble. (laughter) here's how it works. you see, the presidential turkey pardon this year was decided by an online vote. it's like "hot or not" where hot is defined as 375 degrees for three hours. (laughter) what a waste of america's ti
sebelius offering this suggestion to avoid the website traffic jam. visit healthcare.gov no off-peak hours. is that really going to help? good evening senator. >> good evening. good to be with you. >> so what do you make of the secretary's advice as to how to make the website work, you're supposed to go to off-peak hours. seems like they're off peak. >> my constituents say they've tried it all hours of the day. why should peent not be able to go on when they can go on. i think this shows there are still serious problems with the website. and this back end issue is a serious issue. because if the insurers are not getting accurate information then they cannot verify someone's enrolled. we also know that the problems are much deeper than the website and those are higher premiums. i spent all day in new hampshire today talking to business people and going to one of our hospitals that's been excluded from the exchange. >> even if you war game off this back end thing, they're rather dismissive of it. suppose your insurance company doesn't get the information because of the faulty website, so on
of the healthcare institution and liabilities under the dda so as i mentioned this gives us a 2.4 million about 20 years earlier that anticipated otherwise and paid march of this coming year 2014 or as we'll talk about later in the presentation if we're required to get additional approvals from the board that don't come in until after march 1st ucsf would pay about a month after those approvals came through so the first document you have in front of you is the assignment of assumption of a lease agreement transfers the document in its current dda directly from ucsf to -- with the requirement of prepayment of 2.4 million with an eligibility preference for 25 percent of the units. back in june the original proposal of about 33 percent had preference the commission had expressed concerns about that number so we reduced it to 25 percent so the second document in front of you once we have gotten that dda over to the developer amending it we would end up with 200 units and because we would now hold the land versus having sold to ucsf that allows us to ground lease it to the developer so the unit. woul
that healthcare.gov is out of intensive care, they hope to shift the foe cause to health care reform. steve handelsman is live at the white house. >> reporter: thanks. out of intensive care. republicans don't believe it. asked, what else are they hiding? here at the white house was a defiant president obama. he said he's learned not to make what he called wild promises about obama care, but he checks every day. he knows the website and the plan, as a whole now, are working. >> we know the demand is there and we know that the product on these marketplaces is good. the bottom line is, this law is working and will work into the future. i have always said, i will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you got good ideas? bring them to me. let's go. but, we are not repealing it as long as i'm president. [ applause ] >> reporter: back to the website, one of the biggest known remaining problems is the back end of healthcare.gov. after you click and decide what you want, the part of the system that sends your order to the insurance companies, sends an 834 file. washington
progress report on healthcare.gov stated that the team is operating with private sector velocity and effectiveness, raising questions about whether the administration can turn the corner. we met it's an acknowledgment that this was a government operation for a long time and it failed and now we are bringing in the private sector. that is an indictment on the whole idea of government is a solution. reporter: the administration took a bit of a victory lap this weekend about healthcare.gov. the question is whether online users are being moved from one waiting line to another. lou: ed henry, thank you. the problems, on cybermonday. when millions of people logon to website operating from the private sector. amazon.com can handle 2.7 million visitors per day were 80 million per month. ebay gets 4 million per day. 120 million per month, even kayak.com gets more than 50,000 visitors per day. more than 130 million americans plan to shop online at some point today. their user experiences will mirror the obamacare website despite the vast traffic differences. cybermonday is expected to gene
to make healthcare.gov work smoothly for the vast majority of shoppers. trouble since the site's debut in october has cut into enrollments. we learned today that 100,000 signed up in november for a total of more than 206,000 so far, but that is a million short of the enrollees projected. wyatt andrews has been checking into the web site today. wyatt? >> reporter: scott, the administration says that 375,000 people tried to shop on healthcare.gov and that was before noon today. officials called that a strong sign of interest but, again, that high a number created some problems. when june miles-mays tried to sign up for obamacare at a miami health center, the web site put her on hold. "we need you to wait" the site advised "so we can make sure there's room for you." it was her third attempt at signing up. >> very frustrating for me because i need insurance so badly and it seems like something in the system or something is not working. >> reporter: the "need you to wait" prompt is a new feature of healthcare.gov. when the system is overloaded, it puts applicants in a queue and promises an
the white house told us healthcare got gov is supposed to work smoothly for a vast maority of users by the end of november and 50,000 consumers should be able to simultaneously shop for coverage. yesterday people were put into a new cue basically a waiting room after only 35,000 customers clicked on to the site according to the "washington post". then there was this a screen of nonsense and question marks that popped up in the middle of the day after selecting apply for coverage. the white house isn't impressed with the improvements. >> the president believes the site has been significantly improved and that the teams in place have worked 24/7 for weeks now to make those improvements including significant improvements that were made over the weekend. but the work is not done. >> another huge problem is that about one-third of consumers who actually signed up for coverage have issues with their applications. >> can you image, you think you sign up, you go to get coverage because you need healthcare, you go there and you find out that in fact you haven't been signed up. that is a huge
